Jyl Bonaguro

Artist in Chicago United States

I'm a multi-media artist who carves in marble and alabaster and writes plays. For PechaKucha, I will be telling the story of my play Urania, so if anyone has ever wondered about my hitchhiking through France to get to her chateau or why I'm so obsessed with Emilie du Châtelet, March 3rd is the night!

Urania

BY JYL BONAGURO
@ VOL 33 ON MAR 03, 2015

The life of a female intellectual largely forgotten by history emerges in a new play by Jyl Bonaguro portraying how, after falling in love with Voltaire, Emilie Du Châtelet transformed from a social dilettante into one of Europeʼs leading scientific minds.
